His writings on dynamics and his solutions of dynamical problems paved the way for the discovery of steam power and the birth of the modern age. So practically it should be called a culture, however, the word itself does not refer to any civilisation. Eventually all these groups merged to become the people now known as Bengali. Elsewhere, the big issue is nationalism, and the failure of the Congress of Vienna to take nationalism and liberalism into account leads to revolutions across Europe throughout the next 30 years. x Despite the rise of nationalism on the continent, the balance of European power remains stable.

Notably, the great epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata are rooted in this classical period. The Communist bloc, led by the Soviet Union, benefitted from these developments; it was the USA and its allies which were seen as the source of neo-colonialist influences which leaders of developing (or “Third World”) countries in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and South America viewed with grave suspicion.

You have neither good sense nor good feeling, Mademoiselle Therese, let me tell you. They can create great works, and can trigger Golden Ages, Culture Boosts and Tourism Boosts respectively. Well, no heart need despair; for there is not a woman that wouldn't at some time or other get down from her pillar for no bigger bribe perhaps than just a flower which is fresh to-day and withered to-morrow. In the oceans, the Miocene warm period meant expanding reefs, and tropical conditions again visited high latitudes, but not to the early Eocene�s extent.� Corals, mollusks, echinoids, and bryozoans all expanded and diversified in the warm period.

Philo was an example of the intense Hellenization of Judaism. The Ni le River's valley made the rise of Egyptian civilization possible, and it had the Old World�s most reliable food supply.� Even today, half of Egypt�s population lives on the Nile�s delta.� Annual floods brought silt from deforestation and erosion from the highlands to the delta, which kept the fields fertile. [659] � Unlike the Mesopotamian disaster, salination was not a major problem for Egyptians, except at Faiyum and irrigated areas above the flood line. [660] � The Egyptian and Harappan civilizations were not pristine, as they were beneficiaries of Fertile Crescent innovations, and arose from hunter-gatherer societies that did not pass through the learning and evolutionary curve for domesticating their plants and animals.� Those pristine civilizations may have been the only places on Earth where civilization could first appear.� If not for those regions where people domesticated plants, humanity might still be living like aboriginal Australians did for nearly 50,000 years.

Similarly, the US is not backing down on the reckless military solution it has been pursuing in Syria, a manufactured civil war crisis that in June 2014 spilled over to Iraq and threatened regional stability even more than it was prior to the US and its European and Middle East allies trying to secure Syria as a Western satellite.

For instance, the legal drinking age in the United States is 21, while in Austria; an individual... Matters are somewhat more complex when discussing the older urban centres taken over by Muslims. When investigating ho w ice ages begin and end, positive and negative feedbacks are considered.� A positive feedback will accentuate a dynamic and a negative feedback will mute it.� In the 1970s, James Lovelock and the author of today�s endosymbiotic theory, Lynn Margulis, developed the Gaia hypothesis, which posits that Earth has provided feedbacks that maintain environmental homeostasis .� Under that hypothesis, environmental variables such as atmospheric oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, ocean salinity levels, and Earth�s surface temperature have been kept relatively constant by a combination of geophysical, geochemical, and life processes, which have maintained Earth�s inhabitability.� The homeostatic dynamics were mainly negative feedbacks.� If positive feedbacks dominate, then �runaway� conditions happen.� In astrophysics, runaway conditions are responsible for a wide range of phenomena. �A runaway greenhouse effect may be responsible for the high temperature of Venus�s surface .� Climate scientists today are concerned that burning the hydrocarbons that fuel the industrial age may result in runaway climatic effects .� Mass extinctions are the result of Earth's becoming largely uninhabitable by the organisms existing during the extinction event.� The ecosystems then collapse as portions of the food chains go extinct. � Mass extinction specialist Peter Ward recently proposed his Medea hypothesis as a direct challenge to the Gaia hypothesis.� Gai an and Medean dynamics have both played roles in the development of Earth and its biosphere, and positive and negative feedbacks have had impacts.� Life saved Earth�s oceans with its negative feedback on hydrogen's loss to space, without which life as we know it on Earth probably would not exist.� But there is also evidence that life contributed to mass extinction events.
